I know this show has been around for awhile now, but I just got into it and let me tell you I AM HOOKED. I am even being a good girlfriend and waiting for my boyfriend so we can watch them together, when normally I would blaze ahead of him. He gets discouraged when I watch things ahead of him, so I have been patient, very uncharacteristic of me when it comes to me and my shows lol =]
I’m on season 3 now and I’m basically like “don’t bother me, nothing productive is getting done so long as I have so many episodes left- must.watch.” I’ve been known to ignore what Jake is saying while the show is playing. I selected the above picture because I really liked that dynamic of the show. Shane was such a complex character, I both liked and detested him at times. I thought he might be a more aggressive kind of leader over Rick since sometimes Rick made stupid decisions, like staying so long in one area looking for a girl they all thought might be dead.
I was sorry to see him lose his shit. He was wily as a mother fucker, that Shane. I enjoyed the energy and tension he brought to the show. I was amazed by his swan song, how he betrayed Rick and got him alone in the forest. I realized it was a scene long coming, and I was surprised that Rick went all out like he did. I was shocked when he came back from the dead and Carl was the one to put him down.
Maggie and Glenn are one of my favorite couples. Glenn is one of my favorite characters over all. Maggie sees his true value right away when she meets him. Their first run into town together was very enlightening, and we saw Glenn come more into his own protecting her, the farmer’s daughter. I really enjoyed Herschel and his family being brought into the show. Glenn was a bad ass when he was getting tortured, refusing to give up camp like he did. He truly is a good strategist, and no time like when he was first introduced in Atlanta showed that.
I also really love Daryl! He is truly a valuable member of the team. He is very intuitive for his redneck roots. He’s certainly an asset, and I was upset when he abandoned the group to be with his brother. Who ever liked Merle?
Another character I also like is Michonne, despite how little I know about her. Anyway, I’m going to keep watching soon!!
